Navy may have to wait until the middle of December to once again face Army on the gridiron, but they seem to be already prepared for the clash. 

The Sporting News' Chris Littmann spotted a couple of tweets from the Assistant Director of Athletic Equipment Operations at the U.S. Naval Academy, Chris Ford

Here is a capture of the compression shirt and gloves that will make some fans rather jealous. I know there are a few football fans, regardless of team loyalty, who wouldn't mind sporting that shirt. 

Ford also delivered this picture of the footwear for the big game. Of course, the program tipped its hat to the famous rivalry, including a message to the program's faithful on the backs of the trainers: "Beat Army."

We all know football fans like to see where the players work and train. Many lost their minds over Oregon's slick Performance Center this week. 

While it has little to do with Navy-Army swag, the Midshipmen are well taken care of when it comes to their strength and conditioning center. 

It will be some time before we know exactly what uniforms the two rivals will wear on the big day. Glenn Davis of Sports Grid helps us out with some fine shots of what they chose to go with last season. 

Here is a glimpse at some of the sights from the 2012 game that Navy took, 17-13:

If past seasons are any indication, both teams will be looking good come December. Now we know a great many of Navy's elite will also have quite the amazing gear underneath it all. 

Army, that proverbial ball is now on your side of the field. We would love to see what you have in the form of tricked-out sneakers and bombastic compression shirts. 

For the rest of us, football season cannot get here soon enough.
